Cobra 29ltd turns on but no sound afterwards, not even when I ask for a question the needle doesn't move after I ask the question, installed in a freightliner cascadia

I guess i will have to ask you the most obvious things. Do you have a suitable antenna connected? The needle moves on receive in most cases, not transmit. A watt meter will help you know if you are transmitting.

try blowing some canned air on the knob and switch to remove dust , also try a dash of electrical component spray on them , then see if it works.

Receives fine, needle does not move on transmit, transmit light lights

Needle on the meter might have went out . Is it stuck in one spot? If it moves during receive and goes to zero when keyed it most likely the final.

What does it mean when the needle moves with the beat of the radio?

Either your power supply is struggling to deliver enough current so when the speaker volume increases, the remaining power for the receiver decreases or the person transmitting has an over modulation problem.
If you turn your volume down and the needle stops bouncing, you may need to look at your power connections or have your radio serviced and set back up.

Will a diesel 360-3 mic ork on a galaxy dx99v

  • Hi, I can help.

  • The Diesel Electronics CB will work but you have to wire it as stated below.

  1. #1 Shield and Black - Ground
  2. #2 Yellow - Audio
  3. #3 White - Transmit
  4. #4 Red - Receive

  • I don't know if anyone before you has re-pined that mic or not so if you just remove that little Philips screw at the mic connector and then give it a quarter turn you can slide the connector out and take a look and compare the wiring. The actual numbering for the pins on the Galaxy 4 pin mic connector is as indicated below in the diagram. As you look at the mic tip make sure the indent on the mic is as it is the diagram.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

I can transmit but sometimes it won't receive. I put on a new cable today & and a new ant. last week (classic 29)

Watch your meter and if the needle is moving but you can't hear anyone then try a different microphone. The wire for receive might be broken intermittently.
